Report: Arrest Warrant Prepared for Aaron Hernandez

An arrest warrant has yet to be issued for Aaron Hernandez, but one has reportedly already been prepared.

There were some conflicting reports this morning whether or not an arrest warrant had been issued for New England Patriots tight end Aaron Hernandez. As it turns out, there has been no warrant issued, but there is one prepared:

New England Patriots tight end Aaron Hernandez is now the subject of an arrest warrant drawn up on obstruction of justice charges based on the possible destruction of evidence in connection with the shooting death of his friend, ABC News has learned.

Police sources told ABC News on Thursday that a major investigative tool – the security system at Hernandez's home, which included video – had been intentionally destroyed. His cell phone was handed over to police "in pieces," and appeared to have been smashed.

So there's your clarification... sort of. All of the conflicting reports are really making my head spin. As far as we know, Hernandez has yet to be arrested. But it sounds like that will change very, very soon.
